    I currently have my phone mounted on a 67Design mount above the radio with the wire running into my dash and out near the factory USB plug (I hate having loose wires everywhere in my cab). On my list this coming week is to tear it apart and see how I can work turning the factory USB plug into power only and connecting my phone directly into the back of the head unit behind the dash to stay hidden.

    Anyone do something similar already?

    Rust, dents, miles, extra metal.
    Seems like the easiest thing to do would be to move the one that's in the dash to somewhere behind the dash, and then just wire up a fresh power-only one to the existing location. Shouldn't have to splice factory wires that way.
